Now open, the Walker Mediatheque is a new cinema-style space that puts visitors in control of viewing the Ruben/Bentson Moving Image Collection. The Mediatheque offers you the chance to browse the collection via innovative touch-screen technology, and play titles you select in the 50-seat screening room.
Merging on-demand contemporary culture with the classic, immersive cinema experience, you can play the new Walker Moving Image Commissions; browse individual works by artists such as Kenneth Anger, Maya Deren, Joan Jonas, Jonas Mekas and Yvonne Rainer; engage with the history of cinema, and view curated selections from the Walker’s own thematic playlists, which include: “Cinemas of Resistance,” “Icons and Iconography,” and “Landscapes/Locales.”
As the Moving Image department continues to digitize works within its collection of over 1,000 titles, the Mediatheque will increase the number of titles free to play, putting visitors at the heart of its program.
